Luke 8:25

25 He said to them, "Where is your faith?" They were fearful and amazed, asking one another, "Who can this be? He commands even the winds and the waves, and they obey Him!"

Luke 8:25 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 8:25

And he said unto them, where is your faith?
&c.] That is, he said so to his disciples, who had professed faith in him, but now discovered very little:

and they being afraid, wondered;
being filled with awful sense of his majesty, were amazed at his power and authority, in rebuking the wind and sea, which at once obeyed him, and were still:

saying one another;
among themselves, privately:

what manner of man is this? for he commandeth even the winds and
water;
or the sea, as the Vulgate Latin. The Syriac version reads both, "the floods and the sea";

and they obey him:
according to Matthew, these words seem to be spoken by the men of the ship, the mariners; but here, according to Luke, they seem to be the words of the disciples; (See Gill on Matthew 8:27) (See Gill on Mark 4:41).

Luke 8:25 In-Context

23 and as they were sailing He fell asleep. Then a fierce windstorm came down on the lake; they were being swamped and were in danger.
24 They came and woke Him up, saying, "Master, Master, we're going to die!" Then He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waves. So they ceased, and there was a calm.
25 He said to them, "Where is your faith?" They were fearful and amazed, asking one another, "Who can this be? He commands even the winds and the waves, and they obey Him!"
26 Then they sailed to the region of the Gerasenes, which is opposite Galilee.
27 When He got out on land, a demon-possessed man from the town met Him. For a long time he had worn no clothes and did not stay in a house but in the tombs.
